You'll Love This Download If:

  • You love interesting photography
  • You want to see chemistry add some extra flare to photography
  • You want to figure out who the heck Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii is

In this feature from Print Magazine's October 2012 Issue, we profile gorgeous (and definitely interesting) photos from the book Nostalgia: The Russian Empire of Czar Nicholas II. Published this month by Gestalten, the book erases any notion that the past is always black-and-white with photography from Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii.

In Local Color You'll Find:

  • Photos that uniquely use color and pattern
  • A profile on the photographer: Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii

In the age of instagram, the work of Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii looks utterly contemporary. Never mind that the chemist-turned-photographer was documenting now-vanished scenes of rural agricultural life at the sunset of czarist Russia. The main subject of his travelogues was color, which he captured in a palette of saturated blues, searing pinks, and acid yellows.
